"I was appalled and dismayed to hear about the despicable act in my hometown. It's a great shock. My commiserations go to the families and next-of-kin of the victims," said Rudi Völler, sporting managing director at Bayer 04, who was born and grew up in the city in Hessen. "Everything indicates it was a racist incident. I believe it's always important to show our true colours when this issue comes up. Hate, violence and racism are abhorrent to us."

Bayer 04 and FC Porto will wear black armbands at the BayArena tonight for the victims in Hahnau. There will also be one minute's silence.
